    Gotten down to 2 hammocks now. One with one without bug net (HH and a Ticket to the moon).

    Trying to go for the light weight AND comfort route so might add a separate bug net to the TttM if it is just as comfy as my Hennessy AND lighter....

    That would bring me down to one

    O no... sorry forgot the non backpacking hammock souvenir I brought from Brazil which is in (in)frequent use in the bedroom.....

    HYOH!

    I've been doing this for about a year now, I have 4. My quest is for the ultimate hammock. It has to be versatile, lightweight, bugproof and comfortable. So far the search continues. It will probably never end. I hope it doesn't...2 cents

    I have a few of various styles bought and made. They really help when you don't want to camp alone. My wife now has one and my son. Two of my spares got used by kids last weekend when we went on a short camp out. You can never have too many back ups for your back ups.

    Simply trying new things has kept me going over the last year +. Had no intention on starting this addiction. Bought an ENO-DN just for fun. Thought it would be good when we take the horses camping so I wouldn't be inside a stuffy camper during the summer.

    Then I saw Shugs video's for Noobs and it all started !!!

    Before I knew it, I'd purchased a WBBB for myself, a Skeeter-Beeter for my 10yr old son and gave he ENO to my daughter. Then came the Whoopie craze. Replace the suspension on everything. Then came the UQ's and tarps. Then the DIY hammock stand.

    Currently I'm looking at options for reducing bulk and weight, so there's no telling if I'll ever stop.

    My current quiver of hammocks:
    HH Explorer Deluxe w. zipper mods
    HH Expeditions w. zipper mods
    HH Scout
    Speer
    Byer of Maine (forget model)
    Some $20 junky jungle hammock from the interenet
    XL Brazilian (x2 for indoor use)
    DIY Gathered End and or Stretch-Side Hammocks...at least 5

    It's a bit out of hand but it's also allowed me to take my good friend and his four boys backpacking, all in hammocks. Bring my wife, two daughters and son-in-law to MAHHA.

    "How many hammocks is enough?"

    I'll let you know when I get there

    Currently own 3, WBBB, a DIY and a Grand Trunk. I sold my HH BPUL and wish I hadn't so I'm hanging on to the rest.

    I'd like to try a bridge and the new Expeds look interesting as well... Uh oh
